Weatherhead Hall is the second residence hall to be built in the undergraduate residential college system. Opened in August 2011, the 269-bed residence hall includes 144 suite style single and double occupancy rooms. The two wing layout, four and five stories respectively, creates interior and exterior courtyards designed to take advantage of passive cooling through air movement and shading. The courtyards are separated by a green wall, which enhances this effect. This allows residents to enjoy the pleasant New Orleans climate year-round in a comfortable setting. Other sustainable features include occupancy controls for lighting and plug controls for increased energy efficiency. The project is in the LEED* certification process, tracking a level of LEED Gold.

Amenities of the building include a large gathering athenaeum space, a seminar room with support spaces, a library and a game room. Each residential floor has quiet study rooms and social lounges and recycle and laundry rooms on each wing. The hall also includes an apartment and office for the Faculty in Residence associated with the college, as well as an Area Director Apartment and Office.

The project was originally designed and scheduled to begin construction on August 29, 2005, the day Hurricane Katrina came ashore.  Construction was delayed and recently completed with some design modifications to accommodate updated building codes, flood elevation regulations, LEED requirements and slight programmatic changes.
